I am happy to be a member of the Catholic Writers Guild. This is a professional organization that does so much for writers, including providing opportunities for networking with other writers, publishers, and editors. Additionally, they help authors promote their work.
But they also provide a service to bookstores and readers!
Four times a year, they review books submitted to them, analyzing them for quality and content. When a book merits the CWG Seal of Approval, bookstores and readers can rest assured that it has editorial integrity and that it supports Catholic beliefs and values.
If you’ve ever read a book that disparages your faith, is poorly edited, or that contains explicit material that you don’t want to read, you can appreciate the value of this seal. The 1st quarter Seal of Approval awardees have just been announced!
